COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like you’ve never seen it before. And crunching through crisp, sparkling drifts releases billows of pineapple, citrus and papaya with every step. The reign of the snow angel is over. Long live the hop angel where parks and playgrounds become adorned with the outlines of celestial beings that fell to Earth from angry looking emerald clouds. Tune in to breakfast TV to find life’s on hold for 24 hours as this ’hop day’ demands you rocket down a hill on the back of a baking tray. Or simply raise a glass of this festive IPA as we wish you a very hoppy Christmas.

330 ml bottle. Batch #320, BBE 11-10-2013. 7.5% ABV.
Pours a deep golden copper colour with a firm white head. Aroma of fresh floral hops, citrus and some honey. Flavour of crisp floral hops, heavy caramel, mint, pineapple and bread-like maltiness. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a sharp, sweet, bitter finish which leads to hoppy burbs. Quite musty but nicely hopped. Will buy this again.

Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,33l - Voodoo Doll 6,8% - kjøpt på Vinmonopolet i Brønnøysund og drukket på rom 208 på Elite Plaza Hotel i Örnskjöldsvik 31 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum som varer noen minutter. God fruktaroma. Ananas & aprikos. Litt for mye kullsyre. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Får preg av tørket frukt etter hvert med en svakt bitter avslutning.

larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Nearly clear amber body, but lots of little particles. Grapefruit, kiwi and cat’s pee aroma with spicy notes. Dry-sweet wooden strawberry taste with kiwi notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish wooden spicy aftertaste with gooseberry and cat’s pee notes. Fisherman’s Friend traces linger. Not bad, but the hop character is a bit odd. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)
